Green Party NI Statement on Programme for Government Talks
A draft Programme for Government has been agreed between Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and the Green Party.
The document follows an extended period of intensive discussions between the parties.
While there is a strong Green agenda running throughout the agreement, as always, the devil will be in the detail.
For now, it’s a welcome development that the negotiations have resulted in a draft programme that can be put to the wider Green Party membership.
There is now an opportunity for party members to look at the draft programme for government in some detail.
Green Party members, including Green Party NI members, will vote to ratify or reject the Programme for Government. There is a two thirds qualifying majority for the vote.
Timeframes and processes around the membership vote are being finalised by party officers at present.
